Castro not dead – Okra Tom

Despite the several news reports on how Ghanaian

hip-life musician, Castro, supposedly drowned in

the Volta Lake last Sunday, rapper Okra Tom

Dawidi says until the body is recovered, he does

not believe Castro is dead.

Castro went missing on Sunday July 6, 2014, while

jet skiing on the Volta Lake at Ada where he was

holidaying with Black Stars' Captain, Asamoah

Gyan and some other friends.

Reports say Castro drowned while trying to save

Janet Bandu, an acquaintance he met on the trip.

authorities are able to recover his body.

"I don't know why, but I feel Castro is still alive

and until I see his corpse, I believe he is alive. For

now, I only know he is only missing," he stated.

Okra recounted that he met Castro in 2003 at the

Hush Hush studios at the early stages of their

musical career.

"Castro is a very funny guy. He likes to create jokes

anytime we are in the studio, and he is a lovely and

2003, and it was music that brought us together.

We met at Hush Hush Studios," he added.

"I believe in spirituality and I believe this world is

very deep. There are so many things living with

human beings on earth that are beyond us. But I

spirit thing, I can't really say anything about it," he
